September 16, 2013 - Chip maker ParkerVision Inc. has requested almost $500 million in damages in its patent lawsuit against its rival Qualcomm Inc. ParkerVision filed suit in 2011, claiming that Qualcomm infringed six of its patents in the development and sale of certain radio-frequency components used in wireless devices such as smartphones.

ParkerVision said earlier this year that a Florida district court sided with it on most issues in a Markman hearing, which is a hearing to define disputed technical terms in a lawsuit.
